Accessing field data from ListItems

This guy has almost all the information you need.


i)   Check that the field exists
ii)  Check that the field value is not null
iii)  Happily use the value contained in the ListItem to your hearts content.

The linked article used the ‘ListItem.ContainsField’ to avoid some nasty exceptions that can crop up with missing fields.

Check for null values is my lame little value add that tripped me up and I thought it might help remind me (and others) to write it down here.
